    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 7, 2019

    Salvador Larroca is the perfect choice for the art in this issue. Not only does the main story look amazing, but the dark, detailed art perfectly matches the tone of this story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Feb 8, 2019

    A well oiled machine that delivers hope despite the hopelessness, the peril of a species and the very real pathos and tragedy of one poor individual who has seen too much. All in the same journey. I trust the vehicle itself and believe in the journey we are on. Maybe with the return of the two stalwart and trustworthy torch bearers of the dream things can get back on track. With Logan at the wheel and Cyclops in charge of the map. Drive on guys, lets see where this takes us. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Feb 10, 2019

    Finally, after multiple false starts, reboots, and pointless deaths, the proper X-Men flagship title finally looks, feels, and sounds like a comic upholding its legacy. Read Full Review

    An excellent restart to the series, "Uncanny X-Men" wastes no time setting the new status quo and mission statement, treating their characters with care and respect. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 6, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #11 takes the last story arc's ending and it uses it to set up a new status quo. It is a familiar one to long time X-Men fans, but Rosenberg has proven his writing chops elsewhere and this issue is no exception. The Blindfold story feels superfluous, but other than that, this issue is a great reintroduction to the X-Men. The art is top notch and Rosenberg paints a bleak picture without giving away too much. It will be very interesting to see where everything goes from here. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Feb 7, 2019

    This is a huge issue with a higher price tag, but Rosenberg's narrative weaves through all the stories really well, allowing each story to stand on its own but also illuminate the events of the others. That's no small task. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Feb 8, 2019

    No matter what the fans say, Marvel will continue to run their event books along side on-goings in an effort to nab more of your hard-earned disposable. This is exacerbated by the fact that this book is going to cost you $7.99. Still, there is a bit of a good feeling to the idea that, after all this time, Cyclops is back! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 6, 2019

    As a long time X-Men reader, this is a hell of a start which feels both familiar and new. The “X-Men are dead” story has been done before but the way this is presented brings a real feel of desperation and loss we haven't seen for quite some time. This is a group getting ready to fight. You can feel the tension building waiting for a spark to set it off and luckily it's Cyclops and Wolverine that look like they'll be doing exactly that. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Feb 6, 2019

    Mutants being on the verge of extinction for different reasons has been Marvel's status quo for the X-Men for years. Uncanny X-Men #11 sells that idea better than any attempt before. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Feb 6, 2019

    What's happening to the "leftover" X-Men while the others galavant around the Age of X-Man reality is an important story that needs to be told. The problem is, Matthew Rosenberg attacks this story in a way that makes it seem redundant and unnecessary. While many parts of the jumbo-sized UNCANNY X-MEN #11 were entertaining and action-packed, none of it invested me as much as the concurrent Age of X-Man storyline. Confusing dialogue, little action, and a jumpy, fragmented structure yield poor results. UNCANNY X-MEN #12 really needs to show readers why the story it's telling is necessary. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 6, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #11 is the first big chapter in another big X-Men saga. While its storytelling is respectably above average and it delivers a fair share of dark surprises, its great length compromises the effectiveness of its "keep reading" hook. That hook is buried in the middle, and the risk of it losing its hold on you by the end is all too great. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 7, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #11 is not a perfect issue. There are problems with the story as the direction Matthew Rosenberg's has chosen is more of the same for the X-Men franchise. What saves this issue is how Cyclops arc concludes and the quality back-up stories for Wolverine and Blindfold. Having strong artwork from Salvador Larroca, John McCrea and Juanan Ramirez helps further lift Uncanny X-Men #11 quality level. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 7, 2019

    It's a pretty bleak future which Cyclopes has returned to. Most mutants are in hiding, the X-Men are gone, and humanity has found a “cure” for the mutation they fear. As for Scott and Logan, the wait for the reunion feels a bit too strung out (although that's nothing new in comics). And, other than seeing Cable put Logan in Scott's path, I'm not sure you get much from either back-up story to justify the extra pages here (or the the absurd cover price). For fans.

    The new X-Men direction is a little hard to swallow, and the art is low tier, but at least the characters are pretty strong going forward. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Feb 7, 2019

    Overall, Uncanny X-Men #11 is a bit of a hit and miss affair, Rosenberg does well making the main story stand out above the others, and had this book just been that one individual story I wouldn't have had many issues with it as it stands. However Marvel continues to ask a lot of X-Men fans wallets, while not always providing the most compelling storytelling at the moment, and this title continues to be guilty of a bit of that. I can't blame people if they wait for the dust to settle with all this tie-in nonsense going on alongside Uncanny, picking and choosing what's for them when it all finally does, but this is passable if you feel like spending $8.00 on a single issue of a comic book.

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Feb 6, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #11 is a down for Scott Summers. Seeing the ambition and hyper-focused nature of Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 give way to this rushed script is disheartening. Read Full Review
